New Admission Open 2017
About Us
The idea of a Christian Institute for higher and technical education originated in the minds of the leaders of the BCM in the year 2005 – with a long-term aim and vision of establishing an autonomous and deemed university. It developed further with the resolution of the Assembly of the BCM in March 2006 for two important reasons. First, there was a dearth of Residential Institutes offering graduate level courses in Bachelor of Computer Applications and Commerce with special emphasis on English-speaking skills and Christian values based curriculum. Second, to serve as a viable and affordable alternative to graduate level courses offered in Indian cities outside Mizoram for most Mizo parents who invest a huge amount of money for their children’s education.
Dr. Chawngthanpari was appointed as the Project Director for this initiative under the BCM in the year 2006. Under her consistent efforts, with the support of the BCM, the intended Institute was established in June 2007 and she was subsequently appointed as the Institute’s first Principal.
The Higher and Technical Institute, Mizoram (HATIM) was established by the Society of Higher and Technical Studies in 2007 and it began to function with a prayer led by the former Principal Dr. Chawngthanpari on the 21st June 2007 with 29 resident students and 5 dedicated faculty, who were committed to make an “institute with a difference.” Rev. F. Sangvela, the then Associate General Secretary of the Baptist Church of Mizoram dedicated the Institute on 22nd June 2007. The Institute was officially inaugurated on the 24th January 2008 by Dr. R. Lalthangliana, Honourable Minister of State, i/c School Education.  This day is regarded and observed as the Foundation Day of HATIM.
The founding principal Dr. Chawngthanpari retired on 5th March 2016. The Society appointed Dr. Rema Chhakchhuak, M.A., Ph. D as the principal and he took charge of office from the 16th May 2016.
